That wiring harness is cleaner than mine! And I drive mine quiet a bit.
where did you get the front cage pcs? i'm looking to mount one in the wife's rig and she doesn't want posts to the floor...
Finished wiring up the headlights and took it out for a little spin down the street. Engine is running super smooth right now
from a guy on jeepforum that sells them. I think they were $60
Got the whole thing primed one color, put the hood on and I just ordered some parts that I need to finish the dash
Don't let up. Only a month and a half until Rubicon.
Painted and mounted the windshield, just need new glass unless I want to roll around with a permanent instagram filter
Decided against a tailgate for now so I fabbed up a new back panel
Some high res pics for you guys
These were all pre-rear panel replacement
Really like the tailgate filler and logo.
thanks man! I'm going to add a square tube at the top to make it more flush with the rest of the body
is that tape you used? for the back tailgate jeep logo, and punisher logo
yes sir. Taped it off, painted over it and then removed the tape when it was dry. Just bare metal
Killed the battery but couldn't jump it because my driveway just got repoured today so I took it to oreilly to be charged only to find out it needed to be replaced. Good thing it had a warranty! Got a new one and finished wiring up the front lighting.
dash is almost complete
Reinforced the rear tailgate filler and painted the inside
Finished the front end wiring. Passenger side parking light was working then it stopped. I've got to go through that wiring one more time
Interior is almost complete. Just need a tach, a tunnel cover and a cb radio and it's done. Also waiting on a few parts that should be here tomorrow for the dash
Glad to see you got your headlights working, what was wrong with it?
keep up the good work,
I had the accessory power line on the ignition cylinder backwards lol
Haven't updated this in quite a while. I've driven the jeep a few times. It is not smooth from a start. My first inclination is the old *** clutch that's been sitting in it for who knows how long. I've got a brand new clutch kit arriving tomorrow. Going to install on Friday, along with all new seals and gaskets for my leaky dana 20.
Also ordered all new u joints for both driveshafts, yokes look good but the front is a little rusty and will eventually need to be replaced. Also finally ordered a gas tank filler neck so I can fabricate a new setup.
And Friday I'll be ordering the rest of the pre-bent tubing I need to finish the back half of my cage.
Got a wheeling trip set up for September so I'm trying to get it ready for that!
A better update w/pictures will be posted on Friday. It's mainly been sitting in the garage!
Work looks great I like your front roll bar mount
Looks like its going along good
Hydro-clutch is a big improvement too, it will smoothen the clutch pedal a lot, mechanical set-up prompt to fail on trail.
You're doing a great job and i like the way you mounted the front roll case on the dash
Cool....I can't wait to get mine going, I'm getting closer.
